    Swapping a Pelagos for a Speedy Pro?

    Hey guys, I've been getting a massive itch for a Speedy Pro. To do this, I would need to sell/trade my Tudor Pelagos. I believe they are very similarly priced in the secondary market, so it shouldn't cost me much money if any at all.

    If anyone has owned both, could they comment on how the Speedy wears compared to the Pelagos?

    I have realised that the Pelagos is a little big for me and would prefer a watch that wore a little smaller. Does the Speedy wear significantly heavier being SS as opposed to the titanium of the Pelagos?

    I don't think the weight is that noticable. The Pelagos is a hefty watch for being titanium. Actually the heaviest titanium watch I ever tried on to my surprise.

    Great.

    The Speedy is ok for showering and occasional swimming, right?

    I wouldnt, its not a dive watch, doesnt have a screw down crown and is not rated that high. You should not swim with it. You would need a SMP or PO for that.

    That said IMO the Speedy is much nicer than the Pelagos, Its much slimmer, wears better on the wrist and is very comfortable.

    I​ wouldn't, or more accurately I don't. Rain and hand washing is about as wet as mine gets..

    Yeah the swim is a stretch, more concerned about showering as this will be my everyday watch.

    Have you worn the Pelagos? Your comment regarding slimmer and better wearing is exactly what I was hoping for. I know dimension wise that they aren't too far apart, so it's great to hear that it wears a bit smaller.

    Showering with a watch never seems like a good idea to me. The heat won't help anything, steam can get places liquid water can't, and you can always slip and smack the watch on a hard surface.

    I've owned several Pelagos and currently have a Speedy.
    The Speedy will be much more comfortable especially on a smaller wrist. It wears smaller and shorter and lighter. It's allot of fun with strap changes and it's a freakin icon... A classic. It will be alright with rain and hand wishing. I suspect even a quick shower after you've had it WR tested but it may be best
    removing it first. Also price wise it'll be close. You may even get 100-300$ for a 3570
    How old is your Pelagos?

    Great response. Your comments about how it wears are very encouraging.

    My Pelagos was AD purchased by me 1 year ago, so still has Manufacturer warranty.

    [Edit] My wrist is a healthy 7", just a bit of an inclination towards smaller watches these days.
